Who can vote?

You can vote in U.S. federal, state, and local elections if you:

  • Meet your state’s residency requirements
    • You can be experiencing homelessness and still meet these requirements.
  • Are 18 years old on or before Election Day
    • In almost every state, you can register to vote before you turn 18 if you will be 18 by Election Day. 
    • Some states allow 17-year-olds who will be 18 by Election Day to vote in primaries.
  • Are registered to vote by your state’s voter registration deadline. North Dakota does not require voter registration.

Who cannot vote?

  • Non-citizens, including permanent legal residents, cannot vote in federal, state, and most local elections.
  • Some people cannot vote after being convicted of a felony or if they are currently serving time for other types of crimes. Rules are different in each state. Check this guide from the Department of Justice to understand the laws in your state.
